Meeting Description:

This is a seminar at the 11th ESSE Conference at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey, 4-8 September 2012. The seminar is to be co-convened by Alexandra Bagasheva (University of Sofia, BG) abagashevagmail.com, Vincent Renner (University of Lyon, FR) vincent.renneruniv-lyon2.fr and Christo Stamenov (University of Sofia, BG) chstamenovabv.bg. The seminar is devoted to the study of lexical creativity and inventiveness in present-day English(es).

Call for Papers:

This seminar invites papers on any aspect of lexical inventiveness in the widest sense, on all novel and remarkable (rule-governed) formations, (extragrammatical) creations and semantic shifts in the present-day English language. Possible topics of investigation include various creative nonce-formations and lexical metaphors and/or metonymies, neologisms and neonyms, the different motivations for and functions of lexical inventiveness, and also a focus on specific domains such as, for instance, computer-mediated communication. Contributions on all varieties of English, including New Englishes, and on hybrid (i.e. bilingual) formations are welcome.

We welcome abstracts of 200 words in .doc or .pdf format, sent as attachments to the following email addresses:


Notification of acceptance will be sent by 1 March 2012.
